the one in folkestone sounds good to me, any info on it pm me and i will post when i have information.

also st margrets one aswell please

I'll have a dig on the one in Folkstone for you, the St Margerts one is a no-go im afraid, Lynton tried to dig it out (all its entrances were backfilled and buried) and the chalk lining started to show signs of a possible collapse (audible cracking etc) so the project was abandoned and the dig filled in.

      We all know the history of this place and with so many reports going up recently but here is a short version.
       
      Inspired by Tumbles i decided to shoot some old BW Film.
       
      History
       
      Costing £350,000 and ten years to build, the Cardiff City Asylum opened on 15 April 1908. The main hospital building covered 5 acres (2.0 ha), designed to accommodate 750 patients across 10 wards, 5 each for men and women. Like many Victorian institutes, it was designed as a self-contained institute, with its own 150 feet (46 m) water tower atop a power house containing two Belliss and Morcom steam engine powered electric generator sets, which were only removed from standby in the mid-1980s.
      Whitchurch Hospital finally closed its doors in April, 2016 and is due to be stripped down and dismantled.

      During the Cold War, this bunker was built as an auxiliary hospital.
      The overlying school was opened in the 60s while the hospital was officially inaugurated in the 80s.
      It offered 2,370 places and never went into operation.
      At the turn of the millennium, it was relieved of its responsibilities, the inventory transferred to other states, and the hospital will be soon demolished.

      Lots of pictures here!
      I've always been partial to an underground space, the weirder the better! Sat in my research for many years was a place seldom seen. Armed with a vague idea I set off with Lucan on a hunt to see what we could find! Luckily it wasn't as difficult to find as expected! Most decorated underground spaces i've come across are normally very small, usually made of sandstone  and very very dark! These were a nice contrast  although a little bit tricky to capture with  the light lime stone and the light pouring in!  These are 19th century carvings of mythical creatures and emblems tucked away in such a quirky little space!  I think there's the head of a a couple things, a cyclops remains of a bird,  headless man some kind of boar some kind of bear/pig? many had glass around the eyes pushed into the stone!there was remains of a stone circle and lots of carved seating There was also the remains of some kind of tower a shell grotto and a cemetery! slightly puzzling thing to find in the location it was not an easy location to get the bodies too but the metal headstones just kept going into the brambles and the woods.
